The Apostle Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus has been called “a great rhapsody of the Christian salvation.” “This letter is pure music,” says John Mackay, “what we read is truth that sings.” Ephesus was a seaport city - a capital city buzzing with commerce and spirituality. Sound familiar, Bostonians? The ancient letter still speaks today for those seeking renewal and consistency as they are moved to wonder and worship. We invite you to join us for this verse by verse journey through Ephesians beginning May 6.

On Vision Sunday 2018, Pastor Randal shared a new initiative with our community, The Discipleship Project. This project aligns with the mission of Anchor Boston, which is “to lead people toward exchanging misconceptions about God for truth, becoming worshippers of the Creator rather created things.” Discipleship and being a worshiper of the Creator are intertwined. For, to truly be a worshipper of God is requires every aspect of our life being wholly submitted to him; that Jesus Christ is the center, spirit, and glory of all that we are and all that we do.
The Discipleship Project is intentional, to develop discipled leaders. The following are short-term intensive modules that are offered:
Module 1 - Pivot: focuses on establishing spiritual practices which will assist the participant in making a 180 degree pivot as a follower of Christ.
Module 2 - Know: a study in Systematic Theology covering such subjects as the existence of God, attributes of God, Trinitarian doctrine, the earliest creeds of the Church, the Incarnation, redemptive/covenant love, and Eschatology. (Pre-requisite is Pivot)
Module 3 - Defend: designed for those who desire to learn how to defend their faith by studying Judeo-Christian Apologetics.
Module 4 - Share: crafted to equip participants in personal evangelism by teaching the basics of how to live a contagious life as a follower of Jesus (Pre-requisite: Defend)
Module 5 - Lead: designed for followers of Christ interested in spiritual leadership in community.
Module 6 - Alpha: focuses on the big questions of life in this exploration about the meaning of life. Ideal for people on the fence about the Christian faith.
Upcoming module schedules will be posted on our homepage.
An exciting part of our community at Anchor Church is our Anchor Crew community groups! Our crews provide a space for groups of like-minded individuals to interact with each other, with strong foundational theology, and with God, offering a safe place to explore life and faith. While attending, members of a crew can expect to build strong relationships, have life-giving spiritual discussion, and experience encouraging times of corporate prayer. Crews meet all over the city!
The fall crew session begins the week of September 9. Sign ups will begin on August 26.

The Welcome Party! is for people who are new to Anchor Boston. Come hang out, eat some food, hear more about the church, and meet some new friends. The next Welcome Party! will be on August 26 in the Breezeway of the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, 41 Berkeley Street, Boston. RSVP here.
Living in Boston means striking up meaningful conversations with people with various ideas on faith and spirituality. Often, we do not really know what they believe. Thus, we can find ourselves limited in our ability to have meaningful conversations. Join us for a two week focus called Comparative Conversations, on August 26 and September 2. Love is the thing that holds us in all relationships, including those with our friends of other faiths.
Revelation is the last word God chose to speak in Scripture. Last words are typically meaningful and often poignant. How can this "last word" speak to us today? What can we learn about Jesus Christ beyond what is shared in the Gospels? What can we learn about worship? About victory through sacrifice? About the Final Judgement, the New Jerusalem, the return of Christ, and New Heavens and a New Earth? Join us for this study of the vision of St. John, Revelation - The Last Word, beginning September 9: Sundays at 5:00pm.
